Select an Hand/Wrist Condition:
Wrist Contusions

This injury is most often a result of a direct impact to the wrist and is common among athletes but can also be the result of a car accident or slip and fall.

Symptoms of a Wrist Contusion can include:

  • Pain immediately after injury
  • Swelling
  • Bruising that occurs within 24 hours
  • Sensitivity to touch
Wrist Fractures (Broken Wrist)

**If the bone has protruded through the skin, immediately go to an Emergency Room.

Eight smaller bones and two larger bones in the former, the radius and ulna, make up the wrist.   Wrist fractures can occur as a result of direct impact to the wrist such as a car accident or sports injuries.  Also, those with a history of arthritis may be at risk of a wrist fracture due to Osteoporosis.  Most fractures occur in the radius and may be classified as a stable or unstable fracture based on the severity of the injury.

Symptoms of a Wrist Fracture can include:

  • Pain in the wrist
  • Swelling of the wrist
  • Bruising of the wrist
  • Visible deformity of the wrist
  • Difficulty lifting or grasping objects
Wrist Sprains

A Sprained Wrist is one of the most common injuries in both athletes and non-athletes and occurs when the ligaments of the wrist become stretched past their normal range of motion.

Wrist Sprains are divided into three categories depending upon the severity:

  • Grade 1 sprain: Slight stretching and some damage to the fibers of the ligament.
  • Grade 2 sprain: Partial tearing of the ligament.
  • Grade 3 sprain: Complete tear of the ligament.

Symptoms of an Wrist Sprain can include:

  • Pain in the wrist
  • Swelling of the wrist
  • Bruising of the wrist
  • Tenderness of the wrist
Finger Dislocation

**If the bone has protruded through the skin, immediately go to an Emergency Room.

A Dislocated Finger (more often referred to as a “jammed finger”) occurs when the bones of the finger are moved their normal position.  Dislocation can occur in any of the joints in the finger but most often occurs in the middle knuckle.  This injury is common in athletes and occurs when a ball strikes the tip of the finger and pushes the finger backward.  Also, this injury can occur when the finger is caught but the hand continues to extend, forcing the finger out of place.

Symptoms of a Dislocated Finger can include:

  • A “popping” sound in the finger
  • Visible deformity of the finger
  • Pain in the finger
  • Swelling of the finger
